About the Montgolfier prize:
The name Mongolfier (inventers of the hot air balloon) represent the ideas of ascension, innovation, initiatives, perseverance and courage while facing the possible risks. The MONGOLFIER awards, coming from the Mongolfier Brothers (one of them founded the SEIN in 1801), were created to bring a spotlight on rising stars companies from the economical, industrial and commercial worlds, to make them famous internationally and participate in national proud.

À propos de la SEIN:
The Société d’Encouragement pour l’Industrie Nationale (Encouragement Society for the National Industry) is an association created in 1824. Its mission is to stimulate Frances’ economical development, to initiate technological innovation and to encourage entrepreneurship. It is for that purpose that the CHAPTAL and the MONGOLIFIER awards were created. The SEIN contributed directly to the economic development of France during the XIX century in areas as wide as first railroads or the first infrastructures for production and distribution of energy.

Its action is very important for patents and standardization. The SEIN had a pioneering role for different French structures such as the ANVAR (for research valorization), the INPI (the French Patent office), the BPI (French investment bank) and the National Testing Laboratories. The SEIN has kept the same objectives since its creation, and continues its mission to escort the big industrial, economical and social mutations.
